Jack Kloppenburg

mail-4As one of the anchors of the CALS Department of Community and Environmental Sociology––formally Rural Sociology––Jack Kloppenburg was talking about sustainability before sustainability was cool. He teaches the popular Food, Culture and Society course, as well as a large introductory lecture course in environmental studies, and is co-director of both the Program on Agricultural Technology Studies and the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems. In fall 2010, he will help launch the GreenHouse, a new residential learning community, in Cole Hall. Learn more about GreenHouse from Kloppenburg in this Q & A.
